Masterpieces: 

The Most Extraordinary Buildings Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright

 

Asheville
Ask any American to name an architect and chances are they will say “Frank Lloyd Wright”.  Countless books have been written about this prolific designer who saw more than 530 of his buildings constructed.  His ground breaking styles are recognizable to every student of architecture. If you have visited Falling Water, the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, or other Wright buildings, you have experienced the genius of the work of American’s most celebrated architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

 

On Tuesday, April 25, 7:00pm, The Asheville Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is hosting a screening of Masterpieces:  The Most Extraordinary Buildings Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright at The Grail Movie House, 45 South French Broad Avenue in Downtown Asheville.  This is the fourth movie on Wright’s work produced by Michael Miner.  Miner will be at the screening and a question and answer time will follow the movie.   AIA Asheville has screened two other of Miner’s films, Child of The Sun and Romanza.

Community involvement made an impact!
The many years of effort and thousands of hours of work from volunteers has resulted in Alternative 4B that will do more than just move traffic through our city.  This plan minimizes impacts on the historic Burton Street Community and returns Patton Avenue to local traffic. While we continue to work with NCDOT to improve this plan and minimize impact of neighborhoods, lets take a moment to celebrate!
